Stina Blackstenius signs for Arsenal on a free transfer after her contract expiration with BK Häcken.
The 25-year-old has played for the most of her career in Sweden for Linkopings and BK Häcken. The Swedish striker won two Damallsvenskan titles and three Swedish cups. In total, Blackstenius played over 150 matches in the top tier of Swedish women’s football. She also spent two seasons in France with Montpellier. She is also one of the best Swedish players, having played over 70 matches for the national team, won two silver Olympic medals and finished 3rd at the 2019 World Cup.
“It feels amazing to be here, I’m so happy to join such a big and great club like Arsenal. I got a really good first impression about this club, they play really good football and I wanted to be a part of that. I feel like I can become a better player in this environment,” said Blackstenius for www.arsenal.com.
After Leah Williamson extension, that is another big move from Arsenal management.
